Volunteering

Our parent volunteers at Douglass Elementary are extremely valued and important.  There are numerous opportunities throughout the year to participate in your child’s education by helping in the class room; chaperoning field trips; in the library, computer lab or art room and numerous PTO sponsored events.

If you are interested in volunteering for school and PTO activities, please go to:  https://helpatschool.org/schools/34/events to see available volunteer opportunities.

or you can contact the PTO’s volunteer coordinator at volunteerdouglass@gmail.com 

Most in classroom volunteers are coordinated through your student's classroom teacher.

Note: All BVSD Volunteers who are in the school and interacting with students MUST fill out an application and paperwork for background screening.  All the details are found on the Douglass Elementary Volunteer Website.
